The Black Tax — Investment Crowdfunding Edition
Dear Black People, no investment crowdfunding platform cares that you’re Black or female or a Black female or even LGBTQ, or whatever BIPOC is supposed to be but let me not get started on that lazy acronym. The reason that no FINRA regulated platform cares that you’re some minority or from some historically marginalized group is for 3 simple reasons:
Dear Human Leaders,
Your humans are stressed, #burnout and emotionally exhausted. Don't attempt to normalize the last 12 months with asinine quarterly or annual employee reviews.
Over the past 12 months businesses have either crushed it or failed. The pandemic gave out no participation awards. You either won or you lost. Just that simple.
Workforces have been stressed on multiple fronts, none more impactful than #HomeLife. All the normal stress of work, brought to a cramp kitchen table, with a 7 yr old whose Common Core math defies all logic. …
WeChat in Amsterdam. What this means to American Exceptionalism.
Reason 6,758 that the USA is 10 years behind the digital global community, WeChat Pay. June 8, 2019 from #Amsterdam airport.
#WeChat has over 1B daily users. Meanwhile, 99.99% of Americans have never heard of it. WeChat is owned by a company called Tencent. #Tencent is basically the Amazon of China and by default #Africa and the emerging economies. Hence the reason for WeChat Africa and Tencent America.

Who even came up with this idea of not advertising your good, product or service? This is clearly some witchcraft concocted by VCs to explain why they fund ideas with no customers, clients, sales, or revenue. Its because "We're in stealth mode."
😿Is your business so vulnerable to competition or cloning that should anyone find out about it your done?

"Just because you own a dollar doesn't mean you own part of the USA." Steve Quan of Coingenuis explaining the difference between owning Ripple shares and hodling XRP coins.
Each Wednesday, Coingenius has a conference call called "Genius Wednesday". For Genius Wednesdays they’ve recruited thought leaders from across the industry to join in an open discussion of industry matters. For purposes of disclaimers, I’m one of the recruits. But so is Travis Wright of BadCrypto Podcast, who thinks the Chiefs are going to win the super bowl today. …
As a Founder I know how much you love your baby. Your business is so much a part of you that at times it seems you can't exist or wouldn't exist without it. But I'm here to break it to you, you are not your business.
You are funny, interesting, conflicted, nuanced (man this sounds like a eHarmony profile) unique individual. You are not though your business. Your business is your business. Mind your business and sometimes be prepared to sell it. Not all of it. …
Q&A with Alex Wick, 12/22/2020
